McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Aramis craft nothing but the finest wines possible from a unique site. The vines are planted on their own rootstock into some of the world's oldest mineral rich soils, where they enjoy excellent sun exposure and the most temperate of Mediterranean climes. Heat generated during the day is moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines for an extended ripening, permitting the tannins and seed to develop fully.

The Aramis vineyards are blessed by a close proximity to the coast where daily sea breezes combine with the exacting vineyard management regimens to deliver small but high quality harvests of intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes. Berries are always quite small in size, displaying an enhancement of pure varietal characters and splendid concentration of flavour. All the winemaking is highly traditional and very labour intensive. Maturation takes place in a high proportion of new American oak barriques. The final wine is assembled from a selection of the best barrels and those parcels which can best demonstrate an intensity of fruit, balanced by well integrated oak.
 
Deep ruby purple colour. The nose offers mulberries, blackberry and plums with layers of dark chocolate, toasty oak and wafts of fresh mint. On the palate blueberry, black raspberry and tarry characteristics, wonderful intensity, supple integrated fruit tannins and a long finish, all in balance with the alcohol.

Aramis O Aristocratis Sparkling Syrah
McLaren Vale
In their pursuit of excellence, to grow the highest quality grapes and create the finest Sparkling Syrah, Aramis decided to ask the best winemaker to handle their fruit. McLaren Vale born and bred, he knows every acre of soil and every coastal breeze. Most importantly, he develops a kinship with each and every vine. Aramis won't say who this reputable man is, but his brilliance as a winemaker is evident from the moment a bottle of Aramis is opened. That was the arrangement made with the evasive artisan, to allow the Syrah to speak for itself.

McLaren Vale has a fairly Mediterranean climate with the moderating influence of the Gulf of St. Vincent tempering the summer heat and the cold of winter. The climate is characterised by warm summers, moderate winters, winter-dominant rainfall, low relative humidity and relatively high evaporation. Rain during the harvest period and frost are rare. For the viticulturist this means less likelihood of crop damage from year to year. Flowering occurs between July and September with ripening and harvest occurring from February through to May, depending on the variety and weather.
